In the last few months I have realized that I truly do live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world with so many adventures waiting to be explored. I have lived in Washington my entire life and have taken its beauty, climate, adventures and opportunities for granted. I have made it my mission to explore parts of Washington I have heard magical stories of and turn other people’s stories into my own.
This leads me to mission “Explore Washingon”. Let’s get started!
Explore Washington Part 1 started with a visit to Discovery Park. This park is located on the shores of Washington in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle. It has views of the puget sound I didn’t know existed and 534 acres of parks to explore.
My best friend, Devon agreed to go on this adventure with me. I had no idea what to expect. We grabbed sandwiches from a local shop and went along our merry way in sandals and purses in hand. This my friends, I would not recommend. We looked weird and like we had no idea we were going to a park. Turns out there is some hiking involved and trails that will lead you on hikes that sandals and purses just aren’t the best for 🙀 Based off of pictures I had seen, I thought we would just park and have a short little walk to the shore. Not the case, but it was still lovely.
We decided to ignore our less than desirable outfits and just go for it. I really couldn’t believe that just minutes outside of the city there could be acres of the most magestic scenery of the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges. We found a lovely spot along the beach to have our lunch. We watched sailboats, a giant cruise ship and jet skies go by. We watched birds fly in crazy patterns, we watched people as they went on their afternoon jogs. We watched as a newly married couple took their wedding photos and we even saw two seals swim and play right in front of us. Clearly, we saw a diverse range on things and I could have watched forever.
I can’t wait to go back, this time in my sneakers 😁 And to take more pictures, obviously.
